Green Tea Fights Lung Cancer

 

 

While the antioxidant qualities of green tea has been known for some time, there is now research that shows that green tea may actually prevent lung cancer.

A researcher at the University of California at Los Angeles has found that polyphenols in green tea activates a chemical reaction in a lung cancer cell that may actually prevent cancer.

In Japan, where tea is drank several times a day cancer mortality statistics on Japanese people indicate that the death rate from cancer is significantly lower, for both men and women.
